The Puerto Rican Connection is the final mission in Grand Theft Auto IV given to Niko Bellic by Manny Escuela.

In the cutscene, Manny is watching the video of himself and claims it doesn't make him look "street". He then asks Niko to kill some of his former friends who have been mocking him and his new film. Manny's former friends are on a subway train, so Niko drives to Broker and waits for the train to pass over the Algonquin Bridge, where he follows it to Schottler Station. Once at the station, make your way to the platform and eliminate the three targets. They are carrying pistols, so full health is recommended but not required, as a weapon such as a Micro-SMG will be sufficient.

If you don't kill them when they get off the train, they will get into a car and you must follow them until they arrive at the back of the Burger Shot Broker branch, and you have to hunt them down there. After this, Niko cuts his ties with Manny.
